Naturism at Holiday Villa Lanzarote

Naturism  Nude Sunbathing FKK Naturisma Naturisme Lanzarote: Information updated November 2017.  

 

Under Spanish Law, naturism / FKK clothing optional sunbathing is a personal and individual right. This means that if person(s) choose to sunbathe naked or nude, then their personal civil rights will usually be tolerated. Discretion for other persons using any beach or place for naturism on Lanzarote should however always be respected and with due understanding to others.   

 

All of the naturist nudist beaches listed below (save for one) are unofficial nude beaches. 

Naturism is practised on them. None of the Lanzarote nudist beaches listed below offer private sun-loungers, bars, toilets, shelter, food or drink. Here is a selection from our of naturist locations on Lanzarote. It's in no particular order nor is it a complete list of all of the becahes on Lanzarote on which naturism is practised. 

 

Airport Beach between Playa Honda & Matagorda: This beach is adjacent to Arrecife Airport (ACE) Airport runway. Its an easy walk from car parking at the Matagorda end of the airport runway.  Wide beach with yellow sand. Some rocky/stones ‘zoccos’ areas towards the rear of the beach offer a greater deal of privacy. Naturists should best use the middle section of this 1km long beach. Its also an easy naturist stroll to the sea for swimming and cooling off. Beach is popular with single males rather than families. The Boardwalk & cycle track behind the beach is not naturist. This beach is great to visit if you are staying in Puerto Del Carmen, Macher, Tias or Playa Honda. Disgretion advised. 

 

Matagorda area: (Between Arrecife Airport & Matagorda / Puerto Del Carmen). Yellow sand beach to the front of Hotel Beatriz Playa & Spa. Used by some naturists weekdays and out of season. Some rocky/stones areas offer a greater deal of privacy. There will be non nudists and families walking / cycling by on most days so discretion is required. This beach is used by local Spanish naturist persons.

 

Papagayo Area: Located on the southern tip of Lanzarote. Mainly sand and pebbles with great views of Fuertaventura. Yellow/white sand surrounded by headlands and dunes for discrete walking. The larger 2 Papagayo historical naturist beaches are now mainly used by textiles. Suggest naturists use the smaller beach at the very southern part of the headland. Turn to your left on your arrival at the Papagayo headland. There is an entry charge to the National Park for car parking. Pay at the ticket booth on entry. 

 

Between Puerto Del Carmen and Playa Quemada: A narrow flat rock beach extending 2kms underneath the headlands. No sand, rocks only. 10 minutes walk west over the headland from Puerto Del Carmen Old Town or car parking is available on the Camino Barranco el Quiquere. Walk down the steepish concrete steps from the headland. Rocky inlets on left after the steps down. Flatter nudist sunbathing areas to the right. Area can get busy at lunchtimes & weekends. Alternatively park your car on the headlands to the north east of the village of Playa Quemada and walk down to one of the small rocky beaches / inlet coves along the headland to the left (with the sea in front of you). Rocky inlets north of Playa Quemada offer greater privacy & fantastic nude swimming & sun bathing. Care is advised in this area. Families with children should best avoid this location as climbing over volcanic large rocks and tide changes will be an obvious danger.

 

Famara Beach; Beach in the north west of Lanzarote. Famara beach is located north of the village of Caleta de Famara. This expansive sand & rock beach is widely used by naturists. There are large stone / rock 'zocos' to the rear of the 2km beach which allow privacy and wind protection. Towards the sea the beach is brown/yellow sand. Best to avoid on a windy day. Swimming can be dangerous here due to the tides. Beach is quite wide at low tide and perfect for naturist walking with discretion. Park in the main sea front car park (free) and walk north (away from the village development on the right) or drive around the back of the village development and park at the back of this beach. Take care with swimming in the sea & with the coastal tides. Best not to swim at high tide as the Atlantic surf can be ruthless and very dangerous. All naturists should however sunbathe and enjoy Famara at least once in their lives. Its a unique location where the mountain backdrop has no equals.

 

Orzola area: There are several beaches used by naturists in the north of Lanzarote. There are three lovely white sand beaches located to the east of the village of Orzola. Beaches are named Mojon Blanco, Caleton Blanco and Charco de la Laja. Suggest car parking at the back of each beach. These beaches can be windy. There are large rock / volcanic areas allowing naturist privacy and protection. There are beautiful lagoons at Charco de la Laja. The beaches here are often deserted apart from weekends and the summer months when they are very popular with locals and families.

 

Charco del Palo: A property development location in the north east of Lanzarote near to the village of Mala. Naturism is the norm in the development. Follow road directions once in Mala towards the sea. Its a peaceful and quiet residential development of private apartments, bungalows and villas . There are 3 restaurants and 2 bars with lava rock and yellow/white sandy beaches and a swimming lagoon. Privacy can be found on this development as its site is spacious. Property owners here are multi-national, and their property privacies should be respected by all visitors. No BN or FKK card required. Day visitors should use the beach areas only. Park with discretion and respect all rights of locals and residents.
